One small step for Suzi...

Okay, actually she's been taking small steps, and lots of them, since Christmas when she first began cruising. But today she's finally taken off:

Suzi has taken forever to get here - she started cruising right before six months, so I thought for sure she was going to be a super early walker like my youngest sister, who walked right before she was seven months old. But nope. Then around 9 or 10 months, she started taking one or two steps to come to us, so I thought she’d walk at the same time as my other sister and I. But nope.

Then a few weeks ago she started taking four of five steps at a time, but by this point I’d given up hope and decided she wouldn't be walking until 14 months, like Sophie, or 15 months, like Izzy. But over the weekend she started walking further and further on her own and standing up in the floor to take a few steps by herself.

And then this morning, she’s been walking all over the place, choosing walking over crawling 90% of the time. *sigh*

Goodbye, baby, Helllloooo Toddler!
